Woodward Corners by Beaumont

Royal Oak, Michigan

The Challenge

This near 120,000-square foot commercial development is located in Royal Oak, Michigan, at the intersection of 13 Mile Road and Woodward Avenue. Following the demolition of the former Northwood Plaza shopping center, this corner lot, which would be known as Woodward Corners, was ready to be developed into a new site for the community to enjoy. Woodward Corners was designed to include six buildings, including a five-story Hyatt Hotel, restaurants, fitness centers, and other retail offerings.

The Approach

PEA Group worked with Beaumont and consultants to provide Beaumont with a Planned Unit Development (PUD) site plan approval.  Our team prepared a topographic survey of the site that included extensive underground infrastructure, completed feasibility studies, and conceptual site planning leading up to PUD plan development. The development team worked closely with the City, holding a number of meetings and workshops through several iterations of the site layout to arrive at a development that the owners, operators, tenants, and community would be proud of.  In addition to the PUD approval, our team completed the full site civil engineering design, including parking, stormwater management of a 90,000 cubic foot underground detention storage system, and public road improvements to Woodward Avenue, 13 Mile Road, and Coolidge Highway.  PEA Group is also providing additional design services for the Hyatt Hotel development which will be located on the site.
